Outeiro 2013 Red

The grapes undergo natural, small tank co-fermentation for 5 days before moving to new American oak barrels with battonage followed by malolactic fermentation and a 22 month maturation. A steel fist in a velvet glove, the complex wine has red and black fruit, balanced acidity and structure, abundant tannins and a creamy palate.
